About Leicester

The 3-year-old gelding Leicester catches the eye with his striking type. He has a well-build conformation, a great appearance and an excellent size. He convinces with his quick reflexes and athletic ability on the jump. Leicester was sired by the great Harley VDL – one of the most influential sons of Heartbreaker.
Grandsire Verdi TN has been one of the most successful showjumpers of recent years and develops into an excellent producer of Grand Prix showjumpers as well. Great-grandsire Indoctro has been one of the best of his generation for many years. Leicester is closely related to some highly successful showjumpers, such as the legendary Calypso, ridden by Melanie Smith, Gentleman (Rob Ehrens), Unique IX (Tina Fletcher), Vaduz (Andres Azcarraga) and D’Angelo (Wout-Jan van der Schans).
